Island businessman Albert Gubay could soon get a knock on his door from Everton football club.
The club is currently searching for a new home away from Goodison Park, and Liverpool councillors are urging it to stay in the city.
Council leader Warren Bradley has said there are a number of sites in Liverpool which could be suitable.
And among those he named are derelict sites around Edge Lane which are owned by Mr Gubay.
The suggestion could mark a softening of relations between the council and Mr Gubay, after attempts to force him to improve some of the land he owns in the city.
